Following a critically acclaimed, complete sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, David Baddiel: My Family: Not The Sitcom comes to the Playhouse theatre!
My Family: Not the Sitcom is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. It’s a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, and gay cats. Come and be offended on David’s behalf.
